Showers of Blessings

"You sent abundant rain, O God, to refresh the weary land." Psalm 68:6

My living has been in weary land. I am very familiar with the endless expanse. Nothing grows. It's ground is dry and unyielding. Too tired. A famine has claimed life and the landscape is dreary.

Today the Lord is sending abundant rain and times of refreshing.

An early morning walk along the lakeshore.

Reclaiming childhood wonder, when I didn't need wings to touch the sky.

Living water from the Rock.

Providing a foothold of safety when floods overwhelm me.

The companioned footsteps of a friend for the journey.

A cup of tea and a homemade cake.

A listening ear and someone who understands.

A laugh.

A prayer.

A hug.

Yes, today it is raining, and I've been caught without my umbrella. The Lord is drenching me with His love.
